Avaya Holdings Corp is furthering its integration with Google Cloud to fully leverage the AI and cloud capabilities of both companies, providing Avaya clients with new capabilities. Avaya is embedding Google Cloud’s machine learning technology within Avaya conversation services powering the contact centre, enabling easy integration of digital AI capabilities for a consistent and intelligent customer experience.
Avaya is one of the Google Cloud partners participating in an early access program aimed at augmenting next-generation contact centres with various Google Cloud Contact Center AI technologies. In turn, Google Cloud joins a growing number of AI innovators in the Avaya AI Connect ecosystem.
Avaya has also adopted Kubernetes to empower Avaya solutions with microservices and containerization. This advances Avaya beyond basic hosting and virtualization approaches used by many vendors, and enables organisations to embrace a hybrid cloud deployment option for their communications infrastructure, delivering the benefits of cloud solutions while avoiding the one-size-fits-all limitation.
Additionally, Avaya has added Google Cloud Platform as a deployment option for its portfolio of communication and collaboration offerings, providing cost benefits through additional customer choice for cloud deployment. These efforts complement a number of other Avaya and Google Cloud integrations.
“Avaya’s expanding partnership with Google Cloud promises exciting developments across multiple facets of Avaya’s portfolio. From a contact center perspective, new AI-driven intelligent conversation experiences will soon be available to customers who chose to remain on premises solutions, those that are transitioning to a hybrid cloud environment and those that choose to fully embrace the cloud,” said Sheila McGee-Smith, President & Principal Analyst, McGee-Smith Analytics.
“By deepening and accelerating how we leverage Google Cloud across our contact center and unified communications portfolio, we are providing increasingly powerful solutions to organizations of all kinds, enabling their successful digital transformation and driving positive business results. We are excited by the collaborative relationship we are building with Google Cloud as a member of Avaya’s AI Connect ecosystem,” said Eric Rossman, Avaya vice president, Partners, Developers & Alliances.
